Two links. A whole weekend of fun.

Loretta found this amazing site and shared it with me. Click here and when you get to the site, type something and she will say it. You can also change the language and she will say it in Norwegian, Japanese, etc.

My children found this fascinating. And, given their ages, you can only begin to imagine the number of phrases they were able to concoct using the cerebral words "butt," "underwear" and "fart." Definitely a fun party trick.

Also, if you have never heard of Jib Jab you'll want to check it out. A couple of guys came up with a simple-but-hilarious animation technique that typically focuses on politics (but don't worry, they are equally disparaging to all candidates, regardless of party affiliation :)

My personal favorite was this one. As a local small business, I gotta say I chuckled (hard) at the jab at "Big Box Mart."

BTW, spent yesterday putting out all the glorious new Rowan yarns and books. We have a beautiful display of the Cashsoft yarns in Aran, DK, Baby DK, AND 4-Ply - almost twice the colors we have had in the past. Everyone loves this washable merino-cashmere blend. And with all the stacking, I just had time for one photo - who could resist the colors of this new Kaffe Fassett Colourscape yarn? It's tempting enough - but add a great book, and resistance is truly futile.

See what I mean?
